feelings i have about the reactions towards fifty shades of grey:

sexual violence and domestic abuse are awful and should not be glorified in any way.

all violence and abuse is awful and should not be glorified in any way.

i have never noticed any movie that glorifies violence receiving the kind of criticism that fifty shades has received, and while yes! this is great! we should be having discussions about the glorification of violence in films and how that affects people's acceptance of violence on and off screen! -- is this because it's a movie that focuses on violence and abuse whose target audience is women instead of men?
